Today, he plays for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a point guard. Before making it big time in the world of sports, Gordon played one season of college basketball at Indiana, where he was considered one of the top collegiate players in the nation that year. He then went on to finish his freshman season leading the Big Ten, which is the oldest Division I collegiate athletic conference in the United States. Before that, in high school, he played basketball at North Central High School, where he was naturally dubbed “Mr. Basketball” of Indiana by the time he was a senior. Today, he is a bigger and better athlete. On January 27, 2020, the superstar actually scored a career-high in a game against the Utah Jazz. Scoring a total of 50 points in the game, he became the third Rocket this season to score 40 or more points in one game.
